Mac and Chelsea were married at Southall Meadows in Franklin, TN on September 11, 2015. I’ve known Mac for a number of years and was excited to be a part of their special day.
With a venue like this, you can’t help but want an outdoor wedding…despite the threat of rain. Dodging in and out of buildings and under umbrellas, the few showers that passed through only aided in the beautiful backdrop of the ceremony and pictures that we would capture.
But once the ceremony was over, the real party began as food trucks arrived for dinner and the dance floor opened. It was an incredible night with some wonderful people and a whole lot of laughter.
We wish Mac and Chelsea all the best!
Orry and Kodi were married in Monroe, GA at the beautiful Engine Room venue, which is part of the old Monroe Cotton Mill. Touches of their college allegiance showed up in all of the details of the day; from socks to the garter and all the way to their reception entrance…their love for UGA was only outmatched by their love for each other. As these two families came together, it was evident just how excited they were to be becoming one. It was a beautiful day and the beginning of a beautiful family.
Jon and Lindsay were married at First United Methodist Church in Athens, GA on a brisk January day. Lots of pictures and lots of laughter would be a good summation of this beautiful wedding as we captured the First Look at the Botanical Gardens, stopped by the UGA Arch for a few shots, then ventured on to the church for the ceremony.
Surrounded by greenery, the reception back at the Botanical Gardens capped off the whole wedding day as the newlyweds danced the night away with friends and family. We wish these two the best!
David and Katie were married on December 27, 2014 in Kennesaw, GA. Without a doubt, you can tell that these two love to laugh…and have surrounded themselves with godly friends and family that keep the laughter coming. It was a joy to be able to capture that laughter on their special day and couple it with the tender moments of worship. We wish these two a wonderful marriage and hope for the absolute best in all their days to come.

Patrick and Kaitlyn were married in November in Atlanta, GA. From the getting ready at their cute newlywed house, to the beautiful ceremony at Our Lady of Assumption, all the way to the breathtaking reception at King Plow, every detail about this day was personal, heart-felt, and perfect. This has to be one of the sweetest couples we’ve ever met and their families echoed this sentiment as they joined in the merriment of the celebration with lots of laughter and sweet words for the groom and bride. We wish you guys the very best in your new life together, Patrick and Kaitlyn.
John and Lauren were married on April 5th at Fair Weather Farms in Monroe, GA. With a gorgeous lake as their backdrop and even prettier weather they shared their vows in front of friends and family that truly loved them and wanted to be around them…which was evident by the energetic crowd that saw them off…still ready to keep the night going.
The country feel of the day, cowboy boots and all, made for a wonderful afternoon and some amazing shots. We had a blast watching their dog, Jake, run and jump (and even pose) while we captured the moments. Also, pralines. Oh, man, those pralines. I’ve been licking my lips every time I edited a clip with one of those delicious delectables.
John and Lauren, we wish you the very best and are excited for your new life together!

Ben and Abbie were married in May at The Ruins at Kellum Valley Farm in Cleveland, GA. With scenic views for miles and and the overwhelming peacefulness of being in the North Georgia Mountains, this wedding was bound to be an exciting time with the energetic bridal party, rain or shine. And rain it did, right before the outdoor ceremony…but only enough to make this an even MORE memorable occasion to celebrate a beautiful bride and dapper groom as they shared their vows with family and friends.
Congratulations Ben and Abbie…we wish you the very best!
Edward and Heather were married in Birmingham, AL on May 11, 2013 at St. Paul’s Cathedral. With only a few scattered showers throughout the day, we were able to capture some great footage on the grounds at the church and some scenic views of Birmingham from a local bridge, not to mention the beautiful cobble stone street below.
The entire day, from getting ready to the ceremony to the celebration at the reception was an absolute joy to be a part of and we wish this couple the very best in their new life together.

Jesse and Rachel have such a sweet relationship together and it was evident throughout our time with them on their wedding day. Just watch the smile that comes across his face when those church doors open and he sees his bride for the very first time in her extravagant wedding dress.
They were wed at Eagles Landing Baptist Church on July 28th, 2012 with a reception that followed at Eagles Landing Country Club. With a wedding dress fit for a magnificent ball, a cake that looked like it was straight out of a wedding magazine, and a groom completely in love with his bride, this day shaped up to be absolutely perfect for these two newlyweds.
Jesse and Rachel, we loved getting to know you and we wish you the very best in the years to come in your new life together!

Aaron and Lindsey were married at “The Farm” in Bishop, GA. The weather could not have been more perfect…all day there was a breeze and the setting sun served as a perfect backdrop for lifetime vows. As we followed Aaron and Lindsey around throughout the day, we were quick to realize just how pertinent it was that we were using microphones, because they kept us laughing the entire time…through the first look, on the ATV ride, and throughout the evening…and we haven’t stopped laughing throughout the editing process.
The ceremony itself was a beautiful display of Christ’s love for the church and you would have been pretty hard-pressed to find a dry eye as they read their vows to each other. You could really tell that each part of the service was specially crafted to preach the gospel.
The reception that followed was indeed a celebration as it seemed that the people there were growing exponentially. Delicious Bar-B-Q and music ensued as the night drew on and the dance floor remained packed to the rim.
After all was said and done, we LOVED being a part of your day, Aaron and Lindsey, and we’re excited for all of the amazing things in store for your life ahead!
